Some Military men have attempted to stage a coup to take over power in Sudan, Northeast Africa.

According to Aljazeera, the coup attempt by soldiers in Sudan military’s armoured corps was not successful.

Reports from the capital Khartoum and nearby Omdurman say there has been intense military activity, and the main bridge across the River Nile has been closed.

The plotters had tried to take over the state media building, AFP news agency reports.

The location of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok remains unknown after the attempt on Monday.

It was gathered that solidarity songs are now being played on radio stations in the country’s capital, Khartoum.

Sudan authorized have disclosed that some suspects have been arrested for taking part in the failed coup, but the leader of the soldiers who attempted the act remains unknown.

Video on social media appears to show armoured vehicles on city streets, and the AFP news agency reports that traffic now appears to be flowing smoothly in central Khartoum.

According to Reuters news agency, military spokesman Mohamed Al Faki Suleiman says the interrogation of suspects will soon begin.

Two years ago, President Omar al-Bashir, the country’s long-term ruler, was toppled. A power-sharing agreement then established a government involving the military, civilian representatives and protest groups.

The BBC’s Africa correspondent Catherine Byaruhanga says Sudan’s transitional government is under pressure to deliver economic and political reforms amid competing demands from conservative and liberal constituencies.
